Team Effort

A pair of London based companies, Archax and VALK, have recently released news that they intend to work in unison in an effort to better serve the digital securities sector.

End-to-End

This newly established partnership was undertaken with the goal of providing clients of each, Archax and VALK, access to a suite of services enabling end-to-end issuance/trading of digital securities.

In order to enable this comprehensive suite of services, each company will bring something different to the table.

  • VALK will facilitate the tokenization, issuance, and management of digital securities
  • Archax will facilitate post trade activities and liquidity through access to secondary markets

What this means, is that digital securities created through VALK will have a home on the Archax Exchange.  The result is that each company, and the respective digital securities, benefit greatly through the aforementioned capabilities.

Past Integration

Beyond their geographical location, there is one commonality between these two companies – use of the R3 Corda Platform.

As clients of R3 Corda, each, Archax and VALK, have access to an open-source DLT based platform, which enables to deployment of smart contracts.

Commentary

In their partnership announcement, representatives from each, VALK and Archax, took the time to comment.  The following is what they had to say on what this collaboration will mean, moving forward.

Antoine Loth and Elie Azzi, cofounders of VALK, stated,

“We are delighted to seal this partnership with Archax and look forward to being one of the first platforms on Corda to integrate with their exchange. Our clients will now have access to a gateway to liquidity and Archax can benefit from the incredible deal flow of our partners who are issuing, financing and trading very high-quality assets in the private equity, fund, infrastructure and real estate worlds. We are glad to be building the business interface between top performing and reputable institutional players and Archax, the most innovative market venue in the UK.”

Graham Rodford, CEO of Archax, stated,

“We are building the first truly global, institutional market for digital securities based in London. As such, we are keen to list the most credible token offerings – so partnerships like this one with VALK are highly relevant and important to us. Although we are blockchain agnostic in terms of the tokens that we list, we have partnered with R3 to use Corda for our own ledger and post-trade activities, so this collaboration with VALK, who use Corda too, makes a lot of sense. We are excited by the opportunity that the tokenisation of assets brings, and we look forward to working with VALK going forward.”
